  1. Machine Vision Based Multisensor Inspection for Microelectronics

    SBC: Acuity Imaging Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the implementation of improved processes for inspection of micro-electronic assemblies based upon integration and fusion of data from different sensor modalities. Initially the project will be targeted on developing a system that combines data from a CCD camera operating with visible light, a micro focus X-rays imaging system, and a laser based pointrange sensor. Although ...

  2. Non-Eroding Fin Materials

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will analyze and select promising materials and designs to be used in the plumes of tactical solid rocket motors for missile steering and control. The emphasis is on high-performance refractory materials and compatibility of material systems. The control fins experience severe thermal and severe particulate erosion environments. Missile controllability requires fins with minimal er ...

  3. Numerical Simulation of Dynamic Stall

    SBC: Ecodynamics Research Associate            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to develop, demonstrate and validate a three-dimensional, time-dependent, compressible Navier-Stokes program for predicting dynamic stall. The foundation of the program is an existing 3-D program that has been developed under prior SBIR funding for retreating-blade dynamic stall on modern high-performance helicopter rotors. The program will be improved in ...

  6. Compact Thermal Energy Recovery System for Intercooled Gas Turbine Incorporated

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Our objective is to develop an innovative thermal management system for recovering waste heat from engines. The proposed system will tap the large quantities of waste hat from the intercooler of gas turbine engines and use a Rankine cycle to increase the power of core gas turbine, or to drive an electric generator to power auxiliary systems. The innovative aspect of this thermal management syste ...

  7. Low-Cost Cascade J-T Cryocooler with an Oil-Free Compressor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an inexpensive, high performance closed-cycle cascade J-T cryocooler. The cryocooler will be based on a high pressure ratio, oil-free, metal diaphragm compressor. This innovative compressor will be compact, inexpensive and extremely reliable. The compressor can either be used with single-stage mixed-gas or multi-stage cascade cycles. For a single-stage mixed gas cryocoo ...

  8. Eye-Safe Lasers as a Non-Lethal Option for the Individual Soldier

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    In the present domestic and world political climate, U.S. military forces are faced with situations requiring less-than-lethal response options. Low-energy lasers can be effective, non-lethal weapons for a variety of military missions and law enforcement applications. Through the effects of illumination, glare, flashblinding and psychological impact, lasers can create surrender, hesitation, dela ...

  9. 6-DOF Isolation and Excitation Facility

    SBC: SVS R&D SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Tactical military hardware is tested and evaluated to assess performance and ensure proper operation in its anticipated field environment. A key technique involves testing the hardware placed on a test platform isolated from the laboratory environment and associated dynamic disturbances. In order to accurately assess this performance, it is vital that precise environmental disturbances are emula ...
